A belated #vegan brownie cake in honor of my beautiful sister @kate_bera’s birthday!!! 🎉💕 We were raised in a household with sweets available at all times, so I’m always trying to create #healthified dessert alternatives that don’t just curb my sweet tooth, but are also nutrient-dense 🙌🏼 This fudgy, decadent cake is #paleo and refined sugar-free, while the frosting is made with only 2 INGREDIENTS! Can you guess what they are?? 🍫 #AIWrecipes#chocoholic#dessertporn
Are you someone who tends to have The Rabbit mindset? Expecting speedy results, then getting discouraged and returning to old habits? 😬 This kind of mindset leads to yo-yo dieting, which makes it more difficult to lose weight each new time you try or even MAINTAIN a healthy weight long-term. 🤷🏼♀️
This week I challenge you to adopt The Turtle mindset- remembering that the more you appreciate the journey, the longer you will maintain your goal! Adopting a healthy lifestyle has no finish line 🏁
Shoutout to @cartergood for the perfect infographic! #AIWtips#healthyandhappy#youvsyou
Happy #NationalPIZZAPARTYDay !!! 🍕🎉 For all of you who’ve made a tedious cauliflower-crust pizza before and vowed to never spend that much time on a #lowcarb recipe again... I have a much simpler alternative for you- SPINACH CRUST pizza! 🙌🏼😛
This 3-minute recipe requires NO draining and is even lower carb than the popular cauliflower alternative! (Also, did I mention you can actually PICK IT UP like normal pizza without it falling apart?! 🙏🏼)
Needless to say, this is one of my favorite #healthified recipe hacks that you HAVE to try. I’ve had many clients make it for their spouses/families and it’s been met with nothing but rave reviews! I’ll post the recipe in my insta story later tonight, and don’t forget to tag @allinspiredwellness if you try it yourself! 🍕🤤 #AIWrecipes#healthypizza#comfortfood#allfoodsfit
If you’re looking for a quick breakfast/post-workout option in the morning that ISN’T store-bought, #overnightoats are the answer! 🍎 Taking less than 5 minutes to make, this grab-n-go meal is perfect for busy mornings when you don’t have time to cook 🍳🙅🏼♀️ Not only are they super easy to #mealprep the night before, you can also customize the flavor by adding different fruits, nut butters, and protein options! My favorite way to make them is with cinnamon crunch @questnutrition protein powder, oats, apple pie spice, @pbfit.official, and cashew milk. Topped with diced honey crisp apples, this #macrofriendly breakfast tides me over well into lunch-time! 👌🏼😋 Try it out yourself and let me know what flavor combo’s your favorite! #AIWrecipes#eatrealfood#healthybreakfast
One of my favorite lunches for days I’m short on time are these 5-minute tuna avocado boats! 🥑🍅 I simply mix a bit of Greek yogurt or @primalkitchenfoods mayo with a can of tuna, add whatever fresh veggies I have on hand (this time it was chopped spinach, onions, and tomatoes), then season and fill! This #macrofriendly lunch keeps me satiated for hours and doesn’t lead to any afternoon energy slumps 😴🙅🏼♀️ (which is super important when I’m meeting with clients after they get off work!) Try it with chicken if you’re not a seafood fan and it still tastes awesome! 👍🏼 #AIWrecipes#avocadolove#eattherainbow
Happy Mother’s Day everyone! 💜 Have to share this non-food creation with you today: a floral ice bucket! 🌿💐So fun for entertaining and a great way to use up wilting flowers, fruits, or fresh herbs!
How-to: Fill a large pitcher with an inch of water and freeze. Then, place an empty 2-liter bottle in the center and weigh down with rocks or something freezable. Fill around the bottle with water and add whatever décor you have on hand! Re-freeze until ready to use, rinsing outside of pitcher with warm water to loosen. Use with your favorite champagne, prosecco, or rosé! 🍾🥀
Did you know the average Cobb salad often contains over 1000 CALORIES?! 😱🥗Between the oversized portions of bacon, cheese, and high calorie dressing, you could be consuming up to 7 servings of fat in ONE salad (and still leave feeling like you made a “healthy choice”😬)
Instead, when trying to choose a nutrient-dense option at restaurants, look for salads that list over half the ingredients as vegetables 🌶 🥒🥕and don’t be afraid to ask for toppings on the side! That way YOU are in control of the portion sizes and leave feeling empowered from your choices, not guilty about them. 💪🏼👏🏼 #AIWtips#intuitiveeating#youvsyou
🔑A positive attitude will give you power over your circumstances, instead of your circumstances having power over you.
I love this quote because a healthy attitude is the component most often overlooked when it comes to weight loss/lifestyle change.
The clients who come to me looking forward to the PROCESS of changing their lifestyles, not just the RESULTS that come later, are the ones who have the most success. Process-driven individuals stay optimistic when faced with challenges, knowing they can overcome/learn from them. 🙌🏼 #AIWtips#motivation#healthylifestyle
Pulled pork-stuffed sweet potatoes are #whatsfordinner because nothing makes me crave barbecue more than warm, sunny weather! ☀️🌭 It may seem like a strange combo, but putting the pork directly in a baked potato helps eliminate the refined carbs found in traditional buns, while enhancing the sweetness of the sauce! 😛🥔
#AIWtip : look for a BBQ sauce without high fructose corn syrup or refined sugar. ❌ You can find more natural options made with molasses/maple syrup/honey, or avoid packaged sauce all together and make it yourself!👩🏼🍳 Swipe 👉🏼 for a #paleo recipe featured on healthyrecipesblogs.com! #healthyeating#foodisfuel#allnatural#allthingsgf
Are you drinking enough water? 💦🤔 We all know it’s good for us, but how do we ensure we’re consuming enough to reap the benefits?
Time for a Wellness Wednesday #HealthHack : Instead of flavoring your water with artificial sweeteners or drinking a substitute liquid altogether, try adding lemons! 🍋Studies have shown that infusing this tart fruit into our H2O helps us not only drink MORE, but also provides a wide variety of health benefits! 👉🏼 (swipe for a complete list)
A general rule of thumb is to drink 1/2 your body weight in ounces of water per day for optimal hydration.
(I happen to still be replenishing after a 4-day bachelorette party weekend, so optimal hydration has looked like a couple of these pitchers a day for me 😅) #AIWtips#detoxwater#homespa#healthcoach
Another easy, cheesy, beautiful 😋 spaghetti squash meal using my #highprotein sauce recipe posted a while back! I have yet to create a recipe that still FEELS like a cheat, but is more #macrofriendly than this one 🙌🏼🧀 Sustainability is so important for a healthy lifestyle or weight loss program. You should never have to give up the foods you love to look and feel your best! 🙅🏼♀️👅 What’s one food you wish you could eat every day while still maintaining a healthy weight?? Comment below!👇🏼 #AIWrecipes#healthyeating#eatrealfood
Ditch the take-out with this quick and easy cashew chicken stir fry! 🥡🥠
Simply sauté bite-sized pieces of chicken breast in a little sesame oil and minced garlic until almost cooked through. Add your veggies and continue sautéing until tender.🥕🥦 In a separate bowl, combine equal parts soy sauce or #coconutaminos , apple cider vinegar, and honey or granulated stevia for a low-carb option (taste and add more of a certain component if desired). Pour into skillet/wok, along with cashews, and mix until evenly incorporated. Serve and enjoy! 🌶 #AIWrecipes#betterthantakeout#ACV
You can pretty much make this meal in less time than it takes you to drive to a Mexican restaurant, so why not avoid those never-ending chip baskets by making a #healthified , flavorful meal at home?? 💃🏼🥑 I simply sliced a few tri-colored peppers in half and filled them with leftover taco meat 🌶 then topped each with my 2-minute guacamole (avocado, tomatoes, scallions, salt, and lime). They’re like a fusion of nachos/jalapeño poppers and I’m in love 😍🙌🏼 #eattherainbow#AIWrecipes#healthyeating
Another macro-friendly #mealprep recipe: Apple Pie Protein Bars with only 5 ingredients and no added sugar! 🍎😛 So many store-bought breakfast bars’ nutrition profiles are not much better than packaged cookies 🙊🍪 Generally filled with refined carbs and processed sugars (to make them taste good & lead you to buy more), these desserts-in-disguise tend to cause surges of hunger shortly after eating. 🤦🏼♀️
To prevent those 11am cravings, it’s important to make our breakfasts full of protein and healthy fats that satiate us and keep us energized until lunch. These protein bars are filled with both, and TASTE like dessert.. but with completely different nutrition facts 😉 Recipe will be posted in the @allinspiredwellness story shortly! 👌🏼 #AIWrecipes#healthybreakfast#homemade#proteinbar
Meal prepping is not only meant for weekdays! 💡 Friday through Sunday is when we’re confronted with the most challenges/temptations, so why not set ourselves up for success ahead of time? 🥗🍋 I love having dishes prepared for weekend meals because it not only keeps me on track eating-wise, but it also saves time & money! 💸
How often do you settle for a mediocre breakfast/lunch option over the weekend simply because you got hungry while running errands or didn’t want to cook? 🤷🏼♀️ Meal-prepping eliminates this and ensures you don’t undo all of the hard work you put in the rest of the week!
Imagine how much more satisfied you’ll feel Monday if you take care of your health this weekend. 🙌🏼💪🏼 #AIWtips#mealprepping#yougotthis#youreworthit
